Laney Parks is happy with her life. She
has a great boyfriend, a good job in advertising and a
wonderful best friend. And best of all, she’s going on a
romantic ten-day cruise with her boyfriend, who may just be
her fiancé by the time they dock. Yes, life is good.
How could she have known that, by
deciding to surprise her boyfriend by packing for him, she
would get the surprise? Laney catches him in the act with the
blond, white lawyer from his firm? And to find out that it’s
been going on for years! That it was just sex and this was
their goodbye **ck! Devastated, Laney decides to take the
cruise on her own.
Nicolas Sinclair has it all, but he wants
more. He wants the Zelman account for his company and he’d do
just about anything to get it. Even lie and say he was married
and then take one of his girlfriends on the same ten-day
cruise the Zelman’s are taking to celebrate their anniversary.
It will take some fancy footwork, but Nick is determined to
have the account by the end of the cruise. He has it all under
control. What could go wrong?
First the girlfriend dumps him when he
won’t marry her for real. Second, his rival is on the same
cruise with his “wife”, and third, one of his employees in
standing right behind him in line!
With the account on the line, Nick
promises Laney a promotion if she will agree to be his pretend
“wife” on the cruise. Laney doesn’t want to do it; she doesn’t
date white guys, even if they do have a cute butt! However the
temptation of a promotion overrides her concerns and besides,
what can happen in ten days?
Love Scripttakes two
extremely opposite characters and an unwilling attraction and
then proceeds to create situations that bring out the best and
worst of each. Frankly, in the beginning I did not like
Nicolas. He seemed selfish and arrogant, and he was. Bringing
Laney into the mix really caused this character to, well, get
character. He became less abrasive and more compassionate.
Laney was strong from the very beginning and I cheered her on
as she took on Nick. She had to struggle to accept that love
doesn’t matter what color you are, it just is. Love
Script shows you that love doesn’t follow a straight
path. There will be twists and turns and sometimes the ending
you think you want isn’t the one that will make you happy.
